The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School leads the nation in placing students in chosen legal careers and in training lawyers committed to public service and the advancement of a just society.

Our mission holds the greatest urgency. Penn Law prepares advocates for a new era, as technology, globalization and the dissolution of borders—real and virtual—redefine how the law is practiced. Challenges to the rule of law remind everyone why advocacy as a calling matters so much.

The Power of Penn Campaign will broaden access for students, while also alleviating burdensome debt. We will add faculty who are at the forefront of law’s newest frontiers, invest in our academic centers and experiential learning opportunities and redouble efforts to launch public-interest careers at a time when more of our students than ever want to apply their knowledge to create a more just world.

CAMPAIGN GOAL: $100,000,000

Campaign Priorities

  • Increase access to this unparalleled legal education through scholarships, financial aid and added measures to reduce student debt.
  • Ensure career-long success by enhancing experiential learning and skills-based training.
  • Create and broaden pathways to public-interest and government careers.
